Buses on Guernsey
The bus service is operated by CT Plus on behalf of the Environment Department. Our bus services operate daily and will take you almost anywhere on the Island.
The network of bus routes provides a high frequency of services to the Island’s main shopping centres, workplaces, beaches and visitor attractions, and our modern bus fleet offers a very comfortable and passenger friendly ride. Follow the links below for more information on:
You can board the buses at any of the bus stops around the Island. These are either painted on the road or indicated by bus stop signs on poles. As many bus stops are serviced by several bus routes, passengers are advised to wave down the correct bus when it approaches.
Alternatively, you can ‘hail’ a bus and, provided it is safe, the driver will stop to pick you up. Please note, this ‘hail and ride’ approach does not operate in the Town, St. Peter Port or Bridge, St. Sampsons area.
If your journey cannot be completed using one bus route and you need to change routes to complete your journey, you do not need to pay twice. Exchange your bus ticket – within a short time of its issue – for a transfer ticket valid for onward travel.
Please note that this transfer bus ticket cannot be used for return journeys and cannot be used when re-boarding a bus if it had been possible to complete your journey on the original route.
Our low floor buses have a wheelchair ramp and a dedicated wheelchair space which can be used by nearly all wheelchair users.
In addition, the buses have kneeling suspension so they can be lowered to provide easy access for older people or people with disabilities. Passengers are advised to wait until the vehicle is completely lowered before attempting to board. Should you require any additional assistance, please ask the driver who will be happy to help.
If you have any queries about the services, then staff will be happy to help you at their Bus Information Kiosk at the St. Peter Port bus terminus. You can also reach us using the contact information here – or through our feedback form here.
CT Plus will be operating the bus services in Guernsey from 1 April 2012 under contract from the States of Guernsey. So who are CT Plus and what makes them different from other bus operators?
CT Plus is a part of the HCT Group - a social enterprise that exists not for the benefit of shareholders, but for the benefit of the communities where we operate. We do this by reinvesting money we make on commercial contracts back into further community services that will help those communities to get out and about. You can find out more about how we work here.
In addition to the CT Plus depot in Guernsey, HCT Group has depots in London, Leeds, Wakefield Hull and Bristol. Our track record spans a wide range of services – from London red buses to social services transport, from school transport to Park and Ride, from community transport to education and training. We now deliver well over 12 million passenger trips on our buses every year. You can find a full breakdown of the services we provide across the group here.
CT Plus Guernsey was established in 2012 for the specific purpose of delivering bus services on the island. It is registered in Guernsey and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of HCT Group.
